Elkann: ‘Juve great despite refs’

John Elkann says ‘Juventus dominated Bayern Munich despite the referees’ and underlines that ‘we still have important objectives’.

The President of FIAT and member of the club’s Board of Directors reflected on last night’s defeat to the German side in the Champions League, during which Alvaro Morata had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside.

“The refereeing element is unpredictable, it is in every match, but Juve showed that they know how to play well despite the referees,” Elkann said to Mediaset.

“Juve are a great team, they showed that by dominating the game against Bayern.

“If you look at what happened in Turin and Munich, the refereeing was an unfavourable factor. Despite that, we were winning.

“It seemed like a semi-final or final on a sporting level. There are players who had an extraordinary game like Cuadrado. The duel with Coman was also nice – he showed he’s a great player.

“I’m very sorry for the result: we had the game in our hands, it’s a shame to have lost it at the last moment. Now we have the Derby and there are still important objectives, like the league and Coppa Italia.”
